Gravity Separation an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Gravity separation has been applied to process chrome slag by steel researchers in India. Heavy media separation (Choudhury et al., 1996) and crushing and jigging (Khan et al., 2001) are the principal techniques used. The slag is subjected to 2-stage crushing to reduce the size to −10 mm and then screened into −10 +1 mm and −1 mm fractions.

SEPARATION OF IMMISCIBLE LIQUIDS BY GRAVITY SETTLING

Abstract. The separation of water from Aroclor 1248 by use of gravity settlers was investigated. The water concentration in the effluent Aroclor was found to depend on several factors, including the inlet and baffle positions, the initial water concentration, and the degree of turbulent mixing upstream from the settler, as well as on the Aroclor flow rate and depth, and the settler length.
